General Hosting Information

Most parish and organization websites fall under Plan A. The other plans (B & C) are designed for parishes who require more storage for various files or for more complex websites. To get started with one of these plans, please fill out our services request form.

Content Management System

We offer the Evolution Content Management System (EVO CMS) for free to all parishes and organizations we host. We provide full support for websites running EVO CMS. Parishes can also use Wordpress or any other CMS that meets their needs.

 

Website Templates

Free website templates are offered for parishes and organizations of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America at no cost. Each template package comes with ready-to-go CSS files, HTML files, supplementary graphics, articles on Orthodox Christianity, and the Online Chapel Snippet. Visit our Template gallery to learn more.

 

Domain Name Registration

Using Parish's Own Domain Name (www.myparishsite.org)

Internet ministries fully supports parishes who have registered their own domain names. We recommend using any registrar who provides DNS services for free, as this makes the setup process very simple. Some of these include networksolutions.com, namecheap.com, register.com, and getyourchurchdomain.com .

Using A Free Domain Address

Internet Ministries will provide parishes with a free domain address.  The parish web site address would follow the pattern of “www” followed by the parish name, followed by the 2 letter abbreviation of the parish's  state,  followed by “goarch.org”. For example Saint George in Brockton, Massachusetts' address might be: www.stgeorge.ma.goarch.org.
